Suggested by a Davaoeña: Marina Tuna

Two suggestions I took from a Davaoeña: Museo Dabawenyo (for the brain) and Marina Tuna (for the stomach).

2nd Floor Sky Garden, SM Lanang Premier, Davao City
(082) 285 1783 / 0906 411 6422

Km 8, Pampanga, Sasa, Davao City
(082) 233 2666

"Home of the Best Tuna and Seafood"

Clockwise from top left: California maki, sinugbang manok in malunggay sauce combo, tuna sisig, chicken teriyaki

Marina Tuna is supposed to be the "Home of the Best Tuna and Seafood," but we still opted to get some chicken, and the only seafood on our table was the tuna sisig. Of the four, the standout was the tuna sisig. (As it should be because Marina Tuna is the "Home of the Best Tuna" not the "Home of the Best Chicken!") The tuna sisig wasn't anything I have had before (and I have had a ton of sisig in my life: from pork to chicken to squid to tofu to tuna). I think I could eat the whole platter of tuna sisig.

My friend, who has been with me throughout this butt-rosying trip, felt so generous that he decided to pay for lunch. Or maybe he was just tired of all the cheap food we had throughout the trip (with the exception of the finger lickin' good crabs in Cagwait). Whatever the case, thank you, mi amigo! I know this meal cost you a lot. Marina Tuna isn't cheap. Dishes go from Php130 up to Php450, with most of it priced Php200 above.

How a friend's generosity cost him:
California maki Php220
Sinugbang manok in malunggay sauce combo Php148
Tuna sisig Php230
Chicken teriyaki Php220
